Black Bass: Many of the bass at this time of year will be holding to some type of cover while the water temperature stays cold. Boat docks, stumps and any rock or concrete are great areas to locate bass. Medium diving crank baits, plastic worms and spinner baits are good bait choices in all assorted colors.
Crappie: Decent numbers of crappie are caught along the pilings of the 1097 Bridge and around brush in 15’ – 20’ depths. Also, the Stubblefield Bridge on the far north end of the lake is holding good slabs of crappie as well. Minnows and jigs are both good bait choices.
White Bass & Hybrid Striped Bass: At this time these fish usually hold along drop offs of submerged humps and points in the main lake area. Slab spoons bounced along the bottom or trolling small pet spoons in these areas are great methods in locating and catching these strong fighting fish and they are good eating as well.
Catfish: Your best catfish action can be by baiting up areas along creek and river channels with sour grain or range cubes and fishing either chicken liver, shrimp or dip baits near the bottom in 15’ – 25’ depths. Also under the 1097 Bridge is another great catfishing area this time of year.
